Presents a survey of the city of Rochester, N.Y., its history, culture and economic advantages. Explains the role of good planning in the city's development.
Ken Smith sez: The high point of this film occurs at its beginning, when we see Rochester's gaudy "clock of nations" in action in its modern Midtown Plaza. Beyond this, all Rochester seems to offer is "stable people" and "plenty of convenient parking".
